Car Park

New Car Park for Bedford Town Centre

A meeting of Bedford Borough Council Executive this week approved the creation of a new public car park south of the river at St Mary’s Gardens.

Subject to planning permission being granted, this investment will convert what is currently a staff car park between Borough Hall and Bedford College into a public car park, providing over 40 parking spaces including 3 disabled spaces. 

With the new footbridge linking St Mary’s Gardens and Riverside Bedford in place, the car park will be ideal for the popular new development, especially for visitors from south of the river.  It will also add new parking capacity for Bedford Town Centre, which is on course for a fourth successive year of footfall growth. 

Mayor of Bedford Borough Dave Hodgson said: “Just over the bridge from Riverside Bedford, this new public car park will help meet increased demand for parking as town centre footfall continues to grow. With ongoing investment in our car parks and a free parking option available every day in Bedford town centre, we are constantly working to help make Bedford town centre an even more enjoyable, accessible and vibrant town for all.”
